Q & A’s

There are 140 categories, with the option for selecting multiple categories.
However, should you have a listing that bridges two professions/categories, i.e. Riding Instructor and Insurance, create two separate listings to clearly promote details of that business.
A Deluxe listing will allow you promote details about your instruction and while the General listing would appropriate for your insurance business.
How many listings can you have under one account?
You can have several listings that are the same level listing or a combination of levels (General – Deluxe – Premium).
When is my listing ‘live’ and visible in the Directory?
Your General Listing will be live after an admin review. You will be notified by email or listing message system.
